Needs Assessment of the U.S. Fire Service
The U.S. Needs Assessment Survey identifies the needs and gaps of the fire service. For the first time ever, the survey is available online, making it easy to fill out and return. We encourage every U.S. fire chief to fill out the survey to make it as impactful as possible.

The latest statistics, research and news about fire

NFPA´s Fire Analysis and Research division supports NFPA programs and the fire community by providing reports and statistics on the loss of life and property from fires. The division produces dozens of reports each year on the overall fire problem, firefighter fatalities and injuries in the United States, major fire causes, fire protection systems, and many more.

The independent, nonprofit Fire Protection Research Foundation collaborates with research organizations throughout the world, investigating new technologies and documenting the performance of fire- and building-related products, all in support of the NFPA mission. The Foundation also convenes research symposia throughout the year.

The Charles S. Morgan Technical Library maintains one of the largest collections of information relevant to fire research today, holding vital data on the topics of fire prevention, fire safety, and fire service. One of the largest fire science libraries in the worlds, the facility supports research efforts and maintains the NFPA archives.
